Gimme Chocolate — A 1920s Jazz cover of the Babymetal song by Postmodern Jukebox featuring Tara Louise

Postmodern Jukebox is an interesting band. This rotating musical collective was founded by Scott Bradlee in 2011 and specialises in reworking modern songs in vintage styles.

Japanese band, Babymetal has to be seen to be believed. The band describes their style as “kawaii metal” or “cute metal” and combines some pretty decent metal instrumentation with the sort of squeaky-voiced melodies that you would normally associate with Japanese pop music. You can see what I mean here.

When Postmodern Jukebox takes a Babymetal song and reinterprets it as a 1920s jazz number, the results are nothing short of incredible.
